Niagara Falls Council seeks early retirement incentive for workers

The Niagara Falls City Council voted on Monday to ask the administration of Mayor Paul A. Dyster to present an early retirement incentive plan for city employees by Nov. 13.

The council is looking for ways to cut the proposed 2018 budget that would raise property taxes.

City Controller Daniel R. Morello said no decision has been made as to what incentives would be offered or who would receive the offers.

He said about 10 police officers, 13 firefighters and 73 civilian employees might be eligible. The last time the city tried this, in 2014, offers went only to civilian employees, Morello said.

The Council has until Dec. 1 to complete the budget. Dyster can veto any changes, but the council can override his vetoes if four of the five members agree to do so.
